IMPORTANT NOTICE : The FSA program is now set to transition to Campus Clubs
A new program is coming to campuses this September that is aligned with the existing Mozilla Clubs structure and will provide a unified model for participation on campuses around the world.
Mozilla Campus Clubs will be replacing the FSA program and so we won’t be accepting any new Firefox Student Ambassadors. The listed FSA Activities won’t be carried any more. You can find more information about the future of the program in this post, where you can also leave your questions.
Learn more about the Campus Clubs at: campus.mozilla.community

Tools and Tutorials
We would like to make the development easier by sharing Mozilla Appmaker for beginners and the collection of Video tutorials by our developer team for developers to start well.
Mozilla Appmaker is a simple tool which will be very useful for developing the HTML5 based Firefox OS mobile applications. The developers need not have the awareness about the coding. We need not type even a single line of coding. It is fully open source and free. Keep in mind that this is only a learning tool for beginners!
